In the clip, the young man is seen nimbly dropping down from the top floor using the balcony railings before reaching the ground and running off, all in just over 30 seconds.

Reports said that the young daredevil climbed down at least eight balconies before dropping onto an overhead canopy covering the second floor and jumping down to ground level.

It is unclear whether the local authorities are investigating the parkour enthusiast.

Parkour is a discipline based on military obstacle course training where practitioners aim to get from one point to another in the fastest way possible without the use of assistive equipment.

One netizen commented: “Life does not have a take two!”

Another social media user said: “Kids are going to watch this and teach themselves how to do dangerous stunts like that.”
